Internship Opportunities

The Delaplaine Arts Center provides the Frederick region with educational opportunities and experiences in the visual arts through classes, exhibits, and programs. The Delaplaine is committed to make art increasingly accessible to all, regardless of background or economic level. Housed in the 100-year-old Mountain City Mill building on the banks of Carroll Creek in historic downtown Frederick, the Delaplaine has been serving the community since 1986. The vibrant nonprofit organization welcomes over 85,000 visitors each year to the 40,000-square-foot flagship of the arts.
